Boil element caught on fire and melted.


If element caught on fire, I would suspect stove needs cleaning. Do that then elements should not smoke for long. (I hope all moisture was removed from stove!!!)

You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

Kill the power to the stove. L2 is always hot to the element. If it welded itself to the frame whats left of the element stays hot. Easy fix but power needs to be OFF

Dual Oven - upper oven bake element replaced but no heat from it


Usually no internal fuses, and most of the time the controller is rated for fault interupt current.... age will degrade them though...

How did you change the element without pulling out the stove? is it a 'click/plug' in? might be that the socket is messed up...

You should not have to disassemble the cabinet, should just be a few screws and the unit slides out... sometimes hidden behind small movable pannels..

Peace

Electrice oven not working


Hi.
You are quite correct in saying that a new element will solve the problem.
It is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.
Please rate my comments.
Thanks.
